Ruili Airlines has signed an agreement with Embraer to join its Energia Advisory Group - Energia is Embraer’s project developing sustainable aircraft for the future.

Arjan Meijer, President and CEO Embraer Commercial Aviation commented: “I welcome Ruili Airlines, the first Chinese airline to join our Energia Advisory Group. The partnership between Embraer and Ruili Airlines is a significant step for the Energia project. We look for partners around the globe to share their innovative ideas and operational insights, adding their expertise to the sustainable aviation mission. Ruili Airlines’ perspective will be invaluable in the development of the Energia family of aircraft.”
